I want to grease the bearings in my hubs, but I've never worked on a wheel like this that doesn't have standard locknuts. How do I get into this thing to grease the bearings?

Look for hex socket in the skewer holes. If there you should be able to use 2 allen wrenches to unscrew the axle.

They are probably cartridge bearings? Not sure how much you will be able to access for greasing. Are the hubs not spinning smoothly anymore?

I haven't done anything maintenance-wise to them yet, so honestly, I don't know what's in there. I figured it was probably time, so I took the front wheel off the fork and gave the axle a spin, and it feels a little rough. So, they do need some attention.
